    Everything was great, but noise level was unacceptable do to twolarge tour groups seated at neighboring tables. They should have been in closed area room.

    My guests and I enjoyed the Moveable Feat; most of us have attended in the past. While it was a beautiful day, the reception hour was held outside on the plaza with lots of sun, which became warm. Would have been nice for a tent or other shade. The food and drink in all was delicious. Our Green group leader (from Minnesota) was awesome!! We have put it on our calendar for next year.

    The CIA has done better in the past. We really enjoy this event (Moveable Feast) The reception was outside in the hot sun with no shade anywhere. Can’t really blame CIA for the weather, but maybe a tented area would’ve helped. Food courses were all good except for the roast beef. Three small, overcooked slices. Come on! You can do much better. I could’ve made this dish at home, and spent only 15 bucks for the whole roast. Service was very aggressive, rushed and rude at times. I understand first and second course, but final course why are you rushing us??? There are no more seatings! Leave us alone so we can enjoy our meal! Especially the last course. Taking plates away when we’re still eating, taking glasses of unfinished wine that we still wanted. And no refill? Three sips of red wine and the glass is empty for the entire last course??? Terrible. Looks like cost cutting underway…

    The food tasting portion was amazing - 5 stars. The remainder of the"tour" really wasn't; a self-guided tour, allowing visitors time to read the displays would be preferred. If the CIA "tours" are going to march us past kitchens, at least turn the lights on inside so we can get a glimpse at the unique learning spaces.

    The tour experience was fantastic. Each of the visitors got a tray of food and seasonings for the tasting demonstration presented on the video. After the tastings and the videos, we get to tour the areas where the classes and lectures are held. I was given a private tour (one person - one student guide) because of my hearing impairment and my need to be able to read the lips of the tour guide. The tour guide was very thorough and able to answer every question that I asked him. I would recommend this tour experience to any visitors.
